Our users located in mainland China, India or Indonesia are complaining about the discourse load time. In some of our locations, it takes more than 1 minute to load the discourse main page.
- Discourse is hosted within a docker container on a single server in AWS Singapore.
- We also use Cloudflare as a free CDN service to “replicate” our static content.
We did NOT set the DISCOURSE_CDN_URL as Cloudflare does not provide this “feature”.
In Hong Kong, the main page is loaded in less than a second. However, in Mumbai / Beijing, it takes sometimes more than 1 minute to load the main page. In these locations, we should have high speed internet connection so I do not really understand what is happening.
Besides CDN services, are there some other ways to speed up Discourse?
